Expressing your likes and dislikes in Spanish: Me gusta(n) / (I like)

The verb “to like” in Spanish is “gustar” and it works differently to most verbs. You also need a pronoun at the beginning to say who likes it. It works backwards, so really you are saying ” X pleases me” – “Me gusta X“.

you like: te gusta
he/she likes: le gusta
we like: nos gusta
you (all) like: os gusta
they like: les gusta

* Add “n” to “gusta” if the thing that you like or dislike is plural.

Me gusta el queso: I like cheese.
Me gustan las aceitunas: I like olives.

* If you are using a verb, use the singular “gusta”.

Me gusta nadar.: I like to swim.
